The one thing I can say that sums up how special this man was is that I am a better person for having been friends with him all these years. There can be no greater tribute that can be said. He was the best - Father, Husband, Companion, and more so, Friend. RIP Guy Demaio. I will never forget you.

Great memories of Guy; he was always gracious to our team when we went west to play in Pittsburgh and Ellwood City and New Castle. Along with many other duties, Guy was in charge of classing and reclassing teams year after year in the ASA.
Our prayers and thoughts are with his family. RIP

I was very sorry to hear about the loss of your father. I've known Guy for fifty years and worked with him as an umpire in Erie County as well.
We have lost a great man and I will miss him.

He was one hellva of a guy. When I was new managing a girl's softball team, he guided me with good advice, always answering my call no matter how often I called. It was an honor knowing him, he was good people.

Mr. Demaio was a gentle and very kind person. I had the honor to be a student of his in the 60s and a
fb friend. RIP now with the Angel's, Mr. Demaio.

As a graduate in 1988, Mohawk, I had the joy of having Mr. Demaio as a teacher. He was wonderful to all the students and a mentor to many.
Prayers to his family and friends.

Sending prayers and sympathy to the family of Mr. Demaio. I had Mr. Demaio as a techer in Mohawk Jr/Sr high school. But in the last 3/4 years he friended me on FB. Such a kind and giving man, he always had kind thoughtful words regarding my Good Morings posts. Some were posts from sites, some were my own flower pictures from my gardens. His kind words got me through some tough dark days, and knowing he had not so good days himself humbled me. I also had a chance to work with his Grandson Julian at Perkins. What a nice young man. Many prayers to his family , sincerely Susan (Haggerty)Smith from Pulaski, Pa
